Thank ya. Thank ya.
And since I'm such a geek, I had to google and "he" is really a female Eastern Hercules Beetle. Maybe she should consider waxing.

Did you keep her for bait? You might get a closeup of a big ole set of catfish whiskers.

I'd need a drill to get that thing on a hook (IF I baited my own anyway. ) But, now that you mention it, she could be the perfect lure for those 5' long catfish I keep hearing about in the Holston. If I caught one of those before my uncle or brother did, they would cry.

A rep to you, Mookster for those fabulous beetle photos! Wonder what you'd get if she mated with Nomadicus's rhino beetle from a few days back?

Thank you PhotogGal. Well, I found out scores of useless info when I googled and oddly enough the male of the species has horns much like the rhino beetle. The most interesting fact is they mate for about 50 minutes. I wonder if we should be jealous.

Thanks. Did you see the little critter I caught in that shot? (I didn't notice it until now )
